Models and Experiments in Timing, Rhythm, and Entrainment

METRE Lab Research

Through experiment, and through the development of theory and models guided by experiment, we aim to address the questions:

What are the computational and neurophysiological underpinnings of our sense of rhythm?

What is the inner logic by which we temporally coordinate our actions, our minds, and predictable processes in the world around us?

Why do rhythmic sound and movement offer potent access to such a broad range of positive neuropsychological effects?
